It's a great time to be a beer drinker, but also the most confusing, thanks to the dizzying array of available draft beers. Expert Joshua Bernstein comes to the rescue with The Complete Beer Course, demystifying the sudsy stuff and breaking down the elements that make beer's flavor spin into distinctively different and delicious directions. Structured around a series of easy-to-follow classes, his course hops from lagers and pilsners to hazy wheat beers, Belgian-style abbey and Trappist ales, aromatic pale ales and bitter IPAs, roasty stouts, barrel-aged brews, belly-warming barley wines, and mouth-puckering sour ales. There is even a class on international beer styles and another on pairing beer with food and starting your own beer cellar. Through suggested, targeted tastings, you'll learn when to drink down-and when to dump those suds down a drain.

This book was fun and full of lots of great tidbits and information. For any beer aficionado or someone who wants to be one, I would highly recommend this. I may even buy it for myself :)

As JCL's resident Beerknurd, Beerbrarian, Brewbrarian, whatever - I drink, beer, often... anyways, it's my responsibility to read and review all the new beer titles we purchase - well, it's not really my responsibility, so much as an obligation... made by me. So yea. The Complete Beer Course is a stellar effort at introducing the beer novice (or beerknurd in need of ever more geekery) to the world of beer in a text book method. The layout is very textbook like - at times a little ADHD with a bit too much going on that doesn't pertain to the topic at hand. However, the context of the book, delivered in twelve easy to understand courses, is one of the best I've come across. Through the introduction of various beer styles, Bernstein does a great job teaching you about the history of a beer style, the context of it's creation, the content / flavor / pairings which most match the beer, and finally, talks about the make-up itself - what hops, malts, adjuncts are typically used in it's creation. Overall well-put together beer introduction, with a mildly distracting layout, but content that is spot on! 4 1/2 stars.
